Insurance Department Announces Health Plans Participating in the 2023 Oklahoma Marketplace
OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Insurance Department today announced that seven health insurance companies will offer plans in the Oklahoma Affordable Care Act (ACA) Marketplace for 2023. The 2023 ACA Open Enrollment Period for individual health insurance plans runs from November 1, 2022, through January 15, 2023.
Seven insurers that offered individual health plans on the 2022 Oklahoma Marketplace will return for 2023 — Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK), Medica Insurance Company, Oscar Health, UnitedHealthCare (UHC), CommunityCare Oklahoma (CCOK), Ambetter of Oklahoma and Friday Health Plans. BCBSOK and Medica offer statewide plans while the other carriers’ plans will be available in selected counties in Oklahoma.
“Insurance company’s participation in the Oklahoma Marketplace is an indicator of a stable, competitive market,” Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner Glen Mulready said. “I strongly encourage those seeking health insurance to visit healthcare.gov to check out their coverage options and enroll in a plan that truly meets their needs.”
Premium will increase by 8-10% on average, reflective of rising prices in the health services sector. Premium increases will vary by plan based on the benefits included in each plan. Premium subsidies remain in place, along with a 3 year extension (2023-2025) of the ARPA eligibility enhancement by the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act.
Plan options, monthly premiums and total annual out-of-pocket costs for 2023 will be available at www.healthcare.gov/see-plans/ later this month upon release of this information by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
